Avoid Remote Access Scams

Cuyahoga County residents are reporting scams in which they are being asked to download or install remote-access programs on their computers. These programs can allow scammers to gain full control of your computer and access accounts.

Scammers use many tactics to target consumers, including pretending to be from a bank or government agency, creating pop-up virus warnings or contacting consumers searching online for computer help or loans.
